Of course, Herbie ignored that part of it and said he didn't care, he'd still like the Reds and off they went on a different subject.
This was on 1460 the Fan in Columbus. Rimer is a hockey broadcaster who has done other sports over the years. He's a veteran with a lot of contacts and doesn't throw stuff around without reason.
Here is the interesting thing about that....
If you remember on Friday night, when we went up 9-0 Griffey was taken out in the 3rd inning inning. Then Sunday he didn't play at all. Maybe a deal is close to going down, so we are trying to make sure he doesn't get hurt.
